The release of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s next major update has been pushed back due to COVID-19 impacting production, Capcom has announced.
Read Capcom’s full statement about the delay below:
Unfortunately, coronavirus (COVID-19) related impacts on production have made it necessary to postpone the release of the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Voice over production for the Italian, Spanish, and French language versions have also been affected, and will be replaced with simplified recordings.
We would like to apologize to all of our fans eagerly awaiting Alatreon’s arrival in the New World, and will provide updates once we have new information to share.
Thank you very much for your continued support and patience. From all the development team at Capcom – happy hunting and stay safe.
